Andre 3000 speaks about Rap

Found this old interview of Andre 3000 and he said somethin in the first minute and a half or so of it... Hip Hop's definition has been misconceived.

With what he said and how he said it... I kinda agree. Seems like you got a few old heads labeling hip hop as this or that and disregarding everything else; they drew a line down the middle and called one side "hip hop" and the other side "rap". Its kinda crazy... M.C.'s were birthed at the party scene; basically starting with DJs doing call and response stuff. So in a sense, if you're gonna label stuff, shouldn't hip hop be the party music and rap be the conscious music? I don't know... I'm just talkin.
